Dogs are very receptive to whistle commands and can be taught a variety of behaviors using this training tool. If you’re interested in learning how to use a whistle to train your dog, here are a few tips to get you started with dog training whistle commands:
1. Start by teaching your dog the “come” command. Blow the whistle once and give the command “come.” Once your dog responds, offer lavish praise and a treat. Repeat this process several times until your dog comes reliably when called.
2. Next, teach your dog the “stay” command. Blow the whistle once and say, “stay.” When your dog stays in place, offer praise and a treat. If your dog breaks from the stay position, immediately say “no” in a firm voice and have him return to the stay pose. Repeat as necessary until he understands what is expected of him.
